8/4/15 – 10:41 A.M.
The Findlay Police Department is seeking a professional accreditation, and part of the process calls for community input. A release from the department says a public meeting on the topic will be held on August 12 at 7 p.m. in the city council chambers. If you can’t make the meeting, comments can also be left on a voicemail system that day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The number to call will be (419)722-2342.
Comments must address Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, or CALEA standards. According to the organization’s website, those standards include law enforcement’s role, responsibilities, and relationships with other agencies; organization, management, and administration; personnel administration; law enforcement operations, operational support, and traffic law enforcement; detainee and court-related services; and auxiliary and technical services.
A team of assessors from the CALEA will begin reviewing Findlay Police Department policies and procedures August 11. They will also facilitate the community meeting the following day.
